Joyful Path of Good Fortune

A clear and comprehensive explanation of the entire path to enlightenment. We all have the potential for self-transformation, and a limitless capacity for the growth of good qualities, but to fulfil this potential we need to know what to do along every stage of our spiritual journey. With this book, Geshe Kelsang offers us step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices that will lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness. With extraordinary clarity, he presents all Buddha’s teachings in the order in which they are to be practised, enriching his explanation with stories and illuminating analogies. This is a perfect guidebook to the Buddhist path.


Foundation Programme – take your Buddhist meditation practice to the next level.

If you wish to deepen your experience of Buddha’s teachings and find meaning and lasting happiness in your modern life, you will enjoy the Foundation Program (FP). The Foundation Program is one of the three study programs taught in the New Kadampa Tradition that was founded by the renowned meditation master, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Joining FP involves enrolling for a section of the book and trying to attend all the classes, one of which is an end-of-term exam. Each class consists of prayers, a guided meditation, teaching and discussion. You are welcome to attend a class before enrolling, and you can join at any time. The class fee is £35 per month, which entitles you to attend most classes and courses at Madhyamaka Kadampa Meditation Centre and its branches.
